• Born Again


    you could have done it more quietly
    but your new found perspective requires
    you to be adamant

    – sinking into
    someone else’s sheets, almost drowning
    in prayer – knees trembling, my god am I salivating

    Father, let me grieve  Mother,
    Allow me to love

    testify that I am clean, arrange the letters
    to form an anagram, the amalgamation
    of virtues I need to exemplify:

    breastfeeding tips,
    napkin folding,

    how to pack the best picnic basket,
    how to perfectly ball a melon,

    writing the recipe book – an heirloom
    for the seventh generation,

    ascension, welcome
    to the jurisdiction again.
